Paxton has trained more than 3,500 installers across the world already this year, enabling more people than ever to use Paxton products. Over 1,300 of those installers were in the United States from more than 700 companies.
This is an increase on last year’s numbers and means the company is well on the way to meeting its ambitious target of training 10,000 installers worldwide in 2019. Paxton are confident they will reach this target, which would represent a 14% increase from 2018 - itself a record year which saw over 3,000 dealers trained in the United States alone.
Increased sales in the USPaxton’s training numbers and product sales in the United States continue to grow year-on-year
Paxton’s training numbers and product sales in the United States continue to grow year-on-year prompting some recent additions to the U.S. team, particularly in their training and sales departments.
Steve Woodbridge, Global Training Manager at Paxton, said: “We’re excited that record numbers of installers in North America are now able to install Paxton products to high standards. Training allows installers and dealers to get to know Paxton’s systems and keep up to date with our latest product releases, which benefits both them and us.”
Paxton free dealer training
“We know that 9 out of 10 trained installers go on to regularly commission Paxton products*. This validates our belief that trained installers are confident fitting our products and will choose them again and again for their customers. We can also be confident our products are being installed to high standards, which is key to an end-user’s experience.”
Paxton has been offering free dealer training in the U.S. since 2017. Workshops are held at Paxton offices, as well as out in the field. With new products released regularly, the program is constantly evolving.
Steve said: “We have ambitions to expand our international footprint even further, which is why we’re striving to achieve the 10,000 dealers trained milestone this year. We’re encouraged by such a strong first half of the year and would like to thank those dealers and installers who’ve joined us so far.”
